I have had the privilege of working with Jillian over the past 2 years while working with hospital and community Eating Disorder clients. I have worked with many dietitians over my 17 years of practice and have never come across a practitioner that embodies all of the skills, competence, dedication and successful outcomes that Jillian encompasses.
– Teresa S., Senior Clinical Dietitian
Jill has that unique ability that often eludes even more seasoned clinicians to identify and connect with clients while at the same time be able to provide clear and concrete boundaries. As a result, the individuals she deals with not only respect her but they listen and are willing to work together to develop a successful plan of care.
